175,000 people on average join a network marketing company in America every week. If that number were ten times that and if all of them did 3 things we would not have a financial crisis.
1- Find something you can get excited about. And remember whatever you end up doing in the Network Marketing industry; the amount of success you will have is highly dependent on how many people you help have a better life. The side effect of getting excited and being passionate about something is that it snaps you out of the doldrums of being unemployed or underemployed.
2- No other industry gives you an opportunity to learn while you earn at your own pace. Study what the company does but more than anything study the art of inviting people to see what it is you do.
Learn to be a teacher by first being a great student. The most successful people in this industry are the most teachable. They are also the most accountable. That means they do what they say they are going to do.
And make motivation your job. Don’t wait for someone to motivate you. Today with Youtube and the Internet in general you watch videos and read free ebooks from the likes of Anthony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki, Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Zig Ziglar and many, many others. Study with network marketing trainers like Tom “Big Al” Schreiter, Dani Johnson and Eric Worre to name just a few that I have studied with..
3- Time: There are two meanings to this. The first is that you have to put in some consistent time. You can’t work your business for a few hours one week and then not work it at all for the next 3 weeks. Imagine what results you would get with that routine at the gym. Going to the gym one day a month is like not going at all. Doing your business part-time means that you schedule 5 to 10 hours a week if you have a job. If you are unemployed then use that time to accelerate your start in your new business.
The second part about what I mean by Time is this. You have to give what you are doing at least 18 months. If you are truly focused and doing all that I am mentioning here and after 18 months you are not making enough to live on then you are either in the wrong business or you are lying to yourself about how much of these 3 points you are doing.
One of my mentors says that 20% of people work hard in this industry and 80% look like they are working hard. Don’t look like you are working hard. Actually do it!
With unemployment still running rampant in the USA and much of Canada I am really hoping that people are not waiting for the government to take care of them. I see the desperation as I read articles about people selling their hair and their eggs. And if that’s not bad enough, how desperate does one have to be to even consider selling one of their kidneys?
Folks there are ways out of the mess you are in but it will mean stepping up and stepping out of your comfort zone. I heard someone say that average people do not force themselves to get uncomfortable. That is why they are average.
I want to tell you about an industry that has created more millionaires than any other industry. However, this same industry has also created more failures than any other industry. This same industry has more negative stuff written about it than any other industry and for one simple reason in my humble opinion. It’s because people will never blame themselves. They have to blame someone else to preserve their low self esteem.
Yes, I’m talking about Network Marketing.
People often ask me “Isn’t that illegal?” And I marvel at their ignorance. Amway has been operating for over 50 years. They have fought the government a few times and still survived. Melaleuca, Usana, ACN, NuSkin and many others have been around for over 20 years. Avon and Mary Kay are big names in the direct marketing industry. So why do some people insist on thinking this stuff is illegal. I think it’s a copout so that they don’t have to join and talk to their friends.
And do you know why people don’t want to talk to their friends about joining them in a business? It’s the same reason this industry has so many failures. People quit and people are afraid of one thing; getting their feelings hurt. Poor babies!
I wonder if their feelings get hurt when they are standing in line for food stamps.
Wake up America!
There’s a saying my dad used to use on us kids “God helps those who help themselves”. There are lots of opportunities in this wonderful land of ours. Opportunities to be of service to others and get paid for it. But yes we have to work for it. We have to be accountable for our own actions and not depend on the state and corporations.
175,000 people on average join a network marketing company in America every week. If that number were ten times that and if all of them did 3 things we would not have a financial crisis. I will tell you what those 3 things are in a few days.
I have written many blogs over the years so I am going to keep this one as my way of keeping in touch with my friends.
